Newsbrief: As of June 30, the PS Vita has sold 2.2 million hardware units worldwide since it launched earlier this year, a Sony representative has revealed to Joystiq.

This means that the fledging handheld has sold around 1 million units since its launch week, and just 400,000 units worldwide between April and June.

The company said as part of its recent financial results that it sold 1.4 million Vita and PSP units combined during its first quarter, meaning that the PSP must have sold approximately 1 million units during the quarter, comparted to the Vita's 400,000 sold.

Sony isn't giving up on the console, however, with plenty of new titles detailed last week during a Gamescom conference. The company is forecasting 10 million Vita units sold by the end of this year.
